im not sure if this has been done before, i apolagize if it has. anyways, i was wandering what you though about having a cartoon or live action series of the future war between skynet and the resistance.
i was thinking of all out destruction. rockets flying all over the place, machine guns contantly firing, vehicles everywhere, ect. like the movie "flash-fowards" but even more action.
i was thinking that each episode, or couple of episodes, could take place over a different country. it could show how john coner leads the resistance around the world, though he could be a mystery and not appear untill the end of the series of something.

Sounds good, but the question is 'will it work?' There has been talk about a live action TV show, but based on Sarah Connor. I don't think the Terminator franchise should fall in to the common franchise movent, which is make a TV series of a popular money maker (i.e. Blade...). Maybe a one-off television series, but lets not try and raise the producers' eyebrows by saying we want a Terminator TV series, when really all we want is T4!
A mini-series based somehwere in the Terminator universe would seem fine to me although I'd prefer if it was to be made then it be based on the war of the machines after T4 is released to tie up loose ends. CGI animation would seem the most logical considering the effects heavy action that would take place.
CGI animation like "Roughnecks: The Starship Troopers Chronicles" would be cool and I think it should be called "Rise of the Resistance" and shows how the resistance is formed and how SKYNET starts to form its army to exterminate humankind.
P.S. : Cool picture I found of the inner workings of one of SKYNET's Factories
We've seen the link, but as many of us are already aware, IMDB's Terminator 4 section is rarely updated and then when it is, it tends to be a very unreliable source for current news or information.
True and I do agree, but based on the television treatments film-to-series projects have had in the past, it would likely be mediocre at best if it were live-action. I could be wrong but examples such as Mortal Kombat: Conquest and Blade: The Series don't exactly inspire confidence.
